Three diesel-electric hybrid demonstrator buses from Wrights are due to be delivered to Dublin Bus during Spring 2019. They will be similar in appearance to the current SG type with a yellow and two-tone green livery. The fleet numbers are WH1, WH2 and WH3.

Review of 2018:

A modification to a portion of the bulkhead near the front door is to be retro-fitted to all SG buses.

A new order for Dublin Bus of 85 SGs for fleet replacement is expected for delivery from late 2018 into early 2019.
Nine hybrid buses are expected to be trialled during 2018 and 2019. They will be supplied by three manufacturers and used on one group of routes. A full order of a quantity of hybrid buses is expected approximately a year later.
The National Transport Authority does not envisage purchasing additional tri-axle buses for use in Dublin.
Earlier deliveries of SGs are to be retro-fitted with an additional bell-stop push button in the buggy bay area.
A new Route 40E has been approved by the NTA to commence operation from 02 December, linking Tyrellstown and Finglas with the new Luas station at Broombridge.
